Non-Friday Games

By DragonFire - Non-Friday Games This coming Friday is always my least favorite week of the football season. Beginning in 2011, almost every school in the area began to take the exact same bye week – NFHS Week 07 – which corresponds to the fall break of most of the schools. It’s not that I don’t understand the appeal of not having the game, it’s just frustrating that every single school takes off during that time meaning you have very little options as to what to watch. South Warren pretty much stands alone in throwing a bone to the area, scheduling a game during that week in each of their three years... Read More →

Beechwood Tiger Insider - Week Seven

By EyeOfTheTiger - Beechwood Tiger Insider - Week Seven Week Six Recap The Tigers hosted one of their biggest rivals last week when the Covington Catholic Colonels came to Ft. Mitchell. There was a big crowd on hand for a Thursday night televised game. It was a promising start for the Tigers as they took the opening kickoff and moved downfield rather easily. They stalled at the Cov Cath 25 but then the Colonels fumbled on their first play. The Tigers then moved to first and goal but a fumble of a center snap turned the ball back over to the Colonels at the one yard line. Despite controlling most of the 1st... Read More →

Inside NKY Football (10/8)

By Walter - It was another exciting week of Northern Kentucky football as we saw some close games, a few blowouts, and some huge individual performances. Let’s take a look back at the action from week 6: Conner 26 Cooper 21 The Jags drove down the field and scored with 2:01 to play but that was just enough time for Kentucky commit Drew Barker to lead his team to victory.

Getting a College Football Scholarship - Part 4

By Ram - This is part four of a four part series on college recruiting and scholarship acquisition. This is a topic that is widely misunderstood and complicated. Every year, I know of several players who could have received money for college though football but could not because they were not educated in the recruiting process. What is the difference between an “Official” and an “Unofficial” visit? A common question parents of college recruits have. The simple difference is: who is paying? Unofficial Visits are much more common, and will encompass the majority of a players college visits. ... Read More →

Inside Western Kentucky Football: October 3

By The Scribe - Five Games to Watch Murray (2-3) at Ballard Memorial (5-1) – The winner of this district battle most likely gets a first round home game in the playoffs. Murray had last week off to prepare for the Bombers, who were hammered 63-28 by Caldwell County for their first loss of the season. The key for Ballard is to contain the Murray ground game and get them off the field on third down. For Murray, they have to limit Ballard Memorial’s big play potential.
